Milford, CT
The Milford Diner is a Silk City diner from 1946. It has been closed since 2003. This photo is from 2009. That year, it was announced that it would be adapted for use as a community and information center. As of 2017, the diner was still vacant. In 2018, the diner was moved to storage on private property in Indiana. There were plans to restore and reopen it but I don't believe anything has happened with the diner.
